We are dedicated to the search for truth and meaning, drawing inspiration from many sources including world religions, philosophies, arts and sciences.

We hold two services each Sunday morning at 9:15 AM and 11:00 AM. Our services usually include music, readings, reflections, and a sermon – although from time to time services may be very different and creative in form! Our ministers lead most services, and about once a month our services are hosted by members of the congregation or an invited speaker.

Our Religious Education program happens during the first service at 9:15, and there is childcare at both services for kids 4 and under.  Usually, the children start in the sanctuary with the adults for the first 15 minutes of the service

Between services there is a social hour, when we gather in the courtyard for coffee, tea and refreshments.
